On Friday in a Corpus Christie, Texas neighborhood a kindhearted man named Eric Messinger watched as his neighbor walked right by a shivering, undernourished dog and drove off in his car.

I have a solution for this. Execute them- psychopaths abuse animals today and kill people tomorrow! We need REAL tough animal abuse laws and enforce them- cause 4 times out of 5 the next time you hear about an animal abuser they killed /maimed/ raped a person. Ask your lawmakers for tougher penalties for animal abuse.

Send the owner to the bowels of Hell. That is where he belongs. Maddie, on the other hand, is in animal heaven and no longer hurts.

Noted and hoping for tougher laws in every country to put an end to these awful sufferings. Make these criminals pay through the wallet where they will feel it as their hearts are cold and empty. Thank you Eric - you are an Angel!!!
